Cervical Screening

Cervical Screening – Don’t Delay, Book Today!

A cervical screen or smear, checks the health of your cervix (the opening to the womb from your vagina). It is a test to help prevent cancer and is offered to all patients with a cervix aged 25 to 64. During the appointment, a small sample of cells will be taken from your cervix and they will be tested for any changes. Detecting the presence of any abnormal changes sooner rather than later means that you can be treated if needed before the changes potentially develop into a cervical cancer.

For further information about cervical smears, please see at the following NHS and Gov.uk websites:
